The first blog post is always the most awkward/exciting/terrifying, isn’t it?
Like, this is the first impression of everything to do with this blog. So while it’s super exciting, it’s also like a “make sure I don’t trip while I’m walking across a flat surface” type nerves. Or the type of nerves when you open a brand new, blank notebook and have to start writing on the first page. I have terrible handwriting, by the way, so after I screw up the first page I just turn the page and move on.
It’s me, Jenny, and this is a brand new blog. I’m not new to blogging; in fact, I started in 2009 on blogger. Blogging has changed a lot since then, and hell, I’ve changed a lot since then.
So, what will this blog be about?
Well, I have found that I have a wide variety of hobbies and passions in life. And one of those things I happen to be passionate about is writing. In fact, I’ve journaled since I was 13. I’m wayyyy older than 13 now (and I also don’t doodle all over spiral notebooks about boys I have crushes on anymore), but blogging has always been my outlet to write about life and events and, ya know, stuff.
But the thing I’ve noticed is, blogging has become “niche blogging.” That is, finding a topic you love and keeping your blog in line with that. And….I just can’t do it.
Don’t get me wrong, I think people who can keep their blogs in one subject area are freakin’ amazing, and I give them all the props. It’s just not for me.
So She Tries is my little corner of the internet to encompass all the things I love to do, and all the things I want to learn to do, with some funny life stories mixed in. Because who doesn’t love funny life stories?
Here is a nifty little list of hobbies I’m into currently!
Nifty Little Hobby List
- Silhouette Cameo Crafts
- Pinning things on Pinterest (I mean, that’s a hobby, right?)
- Stickers, Post-It Notes, Pens, basically office supplies
- Shopping for things I can’t afford (and obviously not buying them)
And obviously, writing (or else I wouldn’t be here writing this!)
So, now that I’ve shared a little about me, what hobbies are you into, or wanting to try?
